On March 13, 2019, we celebrated our 26th Annual Law & Society Award Luncheon honorees Kim Koopersmith and Vanita Gupta, in support of our efforts to secure justice through community power for all New Yorkers.
Kim and Vanita were both thrilled to be honored, and were very supportive of NYLPI’s work:
